Royal Wedding: Do New Yorkers Care About This Thing? (VIDEO)
Do you actually care about the royal wedding? Are you staying up at night wondering about Kate Middleton's dress? Are you going to wake up at 4am this Friday to watch the ceremony on TV?
You'd think from the media frenzy surrounding the unelected monarch and his bride-to-be, that everyone cares very, very deeply for the stuffy British holiday. And so for those of us that maybe aren't that invested, it's a relief to see a video like this and know we're not alone.
New York Magazine's crack video team went to Union Square and asked regular New Yorkers on the street how they were going to celebrate the televised marriage, and it turns out New Yorkers aren't doing that much at all. Nor do they really care. In fact, when one interviewee was asked what else he would be doing instead of watching the wedding, he answered, in true New York fashion, "Not masturbate over people getting married who I’ll never meet ever in my life."
How is this impending ceremony affecting you? New Yorkers and non-New Yorkers alike, weigh in below.
